Some great news. The horn guides have now been cast and fettled and are on their way to Stephenson Engineering. The plate for the new frames has also been delivered to Stephenson Engineering ready to be cut, profiled and the horn guides welded in.
Still in the production process :
Second combined frame stretcher / spring hangar
Rear combined stretcher / brake cylinder support stretcher
Other components are in the procurement stage such as the exhaust steam spider and the slide bar brackets. The plan is to manufacture all of the components together and assemble all in one go due to the number of components sharing the same frame mountings.
We still need your help! Please consider donating at https://www.72010-hengist.org/appeals any amount is gratefully received and your name will be placed on our Frame Appeal roll of honour on the website!
